Weeping Willow Tree
The weeping willow grows best in very moist soils; they may also be successfully used as a quick-growing specimen or as part of a screen in drier areas where it needs regular watering to prevent leaf. It will survive drought well, and it's the most delicate weeping tree of all, with limbs draping down to the ground. They reach a height of 35 to 45 feet with a spread that is about the same as the height; weeping willow needs plenty of room to develop its broad, crown. The Weeping Willow tree is a magical looking tree as the limbs and branches of this tree can sometimes droop all the way to the ground as they grow. They are covered in tiny green leaves during the spring and summer and are especially beautiful in the spring as they bloom. They are covered in small white flowers and as the wind blows it appears to be snowing from the small petals that release themselves from the tree. They are beautiful and adds a special touch and feel to all lawns and landscapes where they are planted. These trees are amazing and area very easy to grow. They grow best in climate zones six through eight and area also called Salix Babylonica. The birds love to perch on the limbs of this great tree. This is an amazing tree and provides lots of beauty and curb appeal to a lawn and home when fully mature. These are a very popular choice for homeowners and landscapers.
